Design by Jennifer McGuire : Mount matted patterned paper on the card front. Add a matted square of pink cardstock and a silk flower accent. Stamp a message on white cardstock and cut into a circle shape. Mat and mount in the flower center.

Design by Tracy Kyle : Align strips of patterned paper on the card front, leaving a thin margin between them. Add ribbon, acrylic charms, and paper flowers. Use decorative scissors to cut a scalloped edge along the right side.

Design by Cathy Blackstone : Stitch together two pieces of black cardstock to form the card base. Cut pink paper to fit the front and ink the edges. Lightly tack down the ribbon and machine-stitch in place. Add a rub-on message and adhere to the card front.

Design by Nia Reddy : Don't hide your feelings -- make a clear statement with a see-through pocket for embellishments. Cut a plastic slide holder into pieces, and attach a strip of pockets to the front of a card. Fill the pockets with punched hearts and stickers, and add a clever title that plays off the transparent look.

Design by Nia Reddy : Use type to create a card that makes a graphic statement and can be reproduced in mere minutes. Fill a text box with color in your word-processing program, and vary the size and color of your type. Print on cardstock, and accent with a punched heart.

Design by Nia Reddy : Give a simple card a sensual feel with elements cut from fabric. Snip a swatch of bold-print fabric and stitch it to the card front. Add a heart cut from velvet, and attach a printed tag with a color brad.

Design by Cathy Blackstone : Start with a purchased card base and some fun pink fabric to craft a simple and sweet card. Mount a swatch of fabric on the front panel, and add a square of cardstock with a decorative edge. A stamped "XO," a heart cut from cardstock, and coordinating accents bring it all together.

Design by Erica Hernandez : Hand-cut a heart-shape window in the card front using a die cut or dingbat font as a template. Back the window with a printed transparency -- make your own or buy one -- and frame with strips of cardstock and nailheads.

Design by Erica Hernandez : Use children's art as the focal point of a handmade card. Adhere the art resize using a color copier or a scanner and image editing software if needed and add computer printed text for a design that's easy to mass produce. A fun patterned bow finishes the look.

Design by Erica Hernandez : Create a custom accent with your computer that can be used time and again. Layer text and images in your editing software and print the finished piece on photo paper for a slick finish. Add a length of printed ribbon to cover the seam where the two colors of cardstock meet.

Design by Patricia Anderson : Chipboard letters and a large heart cut from leather-finish paper work together to form a card with a sophisticated look. Stamp coated chipboard letters with Staz On ink (it won't smear on coated surfaces). Rub on flourishes add an elegant finishing touch.

Design by Patricia Anderson : Use pages intended as mini-book inserts to create an original card. Join the pages with ribbon, and accent the blank sheets with soft curves of patterned paper. Purchased chipboard phrases spell out the sentiment, and a shaped chipboard piece packed with a stamped transparency is a simple graphic.

Design by Patricia Anderson : Create a card with visual depth by punching a window in the center and backing it with a piece of transparency.
